Sailing, Yachts and Yarns is a selection of British sailing legend Tom Cunliffe's most entertaining, outspoken and instructive writing from the pages of Yachting Monthly magazine. Tom's regular column for this leading sailing magazine gives him free reign to explore a wide range of topics. He has a gift for capturing the magic of sail and finding pearls of practical wisdom in the most unlikely nautical adventures. Sailing, Yachts and Yarns is a wonderful miscellany of wit, wisdom and wonder. It will make you laugh and make you think - and make you want to cast off to enjoy the delights of life afloat.

In Yarns, Tristan Jones tells how he began his writing career. He draws on his many adventures to evoke some of the memorable people he has met, and to describe some of the most beautiful cruising grounds in the world. He gives advice on everything from seamanship to dealing with local populations in remote places. Not to be missed is his marvelous evocation in the style of Conan Doyle as the mystery of the Mary Celeste is solved, or the Conrad-inspired story of a troubled steamship, Breakdown. Other yarns include the tale of an unlikely salvage operation in Ibiza, a strange rendezvous on the coast of Africa, and a coincidental meeting with one of America’s greatest cruising sailors.

Desperate to escape the military, Otto von Goff marries wealthy heiress Hildegard von Puttkamer in a marriage of convenience. Even though they are fond of each other, Hildegard needs Otto to help ensure her familys beautiful Prussian estate of Schnwald stays within her control. True to form, when Hildegards father passes away, Otto inherits the estate as Hildegards husband. But the von Puttkamer family wants Schnwald for their own and will stop at nothing to get it Years later, in 1860, Hildegards mother dies, and her will reveals an alarming message: Hildegards distant male cousin, Berthold, is to take charge of Hildegards inheritance instead of Otto, a move that threatens to strip Hildegard and her daughter of their rightful heritage in Schnwald. Not only must Otto contest the will to safeguard his wife and daughter, but also to keep everything he has worked so hard for from being destroyed. Surrounded by enemies at every turn, Otto must gather all his resources to fight for his familys legacy or risk losing it all. Set in the lush landscape of Prussia in 1860, this historical novel goes deep into the heart of one familys struggle to maintain their heritage in the midst of turmoil.

This two volume set, Sailing Yacht Design: Theory and Sailing Yacht Design: Practice, provides a guide to the fundamental principles governing how and why a sailing yacht behaves in the way it does. It also provides an understanding of the physics involved and the mathematical modelling of yachts, The material was compiled for a WEGEMT School held at the University of Southampton in September 1998. WEGEMT is an association of European universities in marine technology. Sailing Yacht Design: Practice Contains a series of chapters by different designers on their experiences of translating scientific principles into reality. Covers the practical design of hulls and appendages such as keels and sails. Describes the practical design of the structure of a high performance hull made from advanced composites. Looks at production techniques and boatyard facilities. Puts a practical perspective on handicap rules, statutory and regulatory constraints and safety considerations. The three editors are all at the University of Southampton, which has pioneered the education of ship science students at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels with specializations in yacht and small craft design.
